This year’s GMM will focus on technology and innovation, and joining our line-up of impressive speakers is trend guru Jeremy Gutsche, an award winning innovation expert and “intellectual can of Red Bull.”

The theme of the GMM, “Leveraging Innovation to Drive Growth,” focuses on the work and experience of business leaders in the asset management industry.
